Virgil Van Dijk is suspended for Sunday’s match against Aston Villa, and may see his suspension extended by the Football Association due to his reaction to his red card.

 

Unfortunately for the Reds, head coach Jürgen Klopp has confirmed that Ibrahima Konaté will not be fit for Sunday’s match either, meaning the Reds will be without their first choice centerback pairing.

 

Klopp did not provide information about when to expect Konaté back in the side, so we can hope his absence is out of an abundance of caution ahead of the international break.

 

Elsewhere in the team, Thiago has suffered an injury setback:

 

“Thiago has had a little setback after starting training with the team. He has to slow down a little bit. It’s not cool for him .
